Chronic Aspiration

Cincinnati Area Chronic Aspiration Relief

Chronic AspirationChronic aspiration refers to the tendency for food, drink and saliva to travel into the trachea, bronchi or lungs. When someone is eating or drinking and all of a sudden gasps or coughs, it’s usually an indication that they have aspirated. People who do this typically say, “It went down the wrong pipe!”

We all aspirate from time to time and the coughing associated with aspiration is the body’s natural reflex for clearing food, drink or saliva from the lungs and airways.

For some, aspiration occurs frequently. When it does, it’s a health condition referred to as chronic aspiration. Repeated aspiration affects people of all ages, but it is seen most often with children. Kids who struggle with chronic aspiration are at risk for developing lung damage and becoming seriously ill.

At Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, we have been helping infants, toddlers and older children suffering from chronic aspiration for nearly 20 years.  Our approach to chronic aspiration does not involve prescription drugs or surgery. Rather, we use our safe, proven and effective chiropractic care to restore and optimize the normal functions of the body that relieve health conditions such as chronic aspiration.

A Mom’s Story of Finding Answers for Her Son

Chronic Aspiration Relief at Baker Chiropractic “Our son, Colt, was diagnosed with chronic aspiration at the age of 1. Along with the chronic aspiration came multiple respiratory infections, multiple doctors, different types of medications and many other diagnoses.

By the age of 2 1/2, Colt had been under general anesthesia eight (8) times for tests the doctors deemed medically necessary to further treat and diagnose Colt. With each test came more questions, but no solution to his problem. No medical doctor has ever told us why he aspirates or why he has chronic respiratory infections. The medical doctors are always quick to prescribe medications, but are never confident they will work. The scary part about the medications is the horrible side effects and the long term damage the medications cause. Our frustration and disappointment were at a peak when a friend recommended Dr. Patrick Baker. We agreed to see Dr. Baker because we thought it couldn’t hurt.

When we came to Dr. Baker’s office, it was a foreign environment for us. However, once I got to talk to Dr. Baker and he explained chiropractic care to me, it made a lot of sense.

While I was still unsure, we allowed Dr. Baker to begin chiropractic adjustments on our son. Colt was terrified in the beginning, which was to be expected. All he has ever been able to equate doctors with is more pain. Over time Colt has grown confident with his chiropractic care. In fact, he now he asks when he gets to see Dr. Baker again!

Colt’s new confidence has been wonderful, but the biggest blessing we have gotten is the significant improvement in his respiratory status. He is sleeping through the night without coughing. Since we began seeing Dr. Baker, he has had only one (1) respiratory infection and he was over the infection in five (5) days compared to his past respiratory infections that lasted 2-3 weeks at a minimum.  In addition, during this last respiratory infection, he was not given steroids or breathing treatments, like in the past. Colt is now a normal, HEALTHY 3 year old who isn’t taking any prescribed medications!

Dr. Baker has given us our lives back and we are truly grateful. For the first time since Colt’s health issues began, we believe we are on the correct path for success and healing.

For my husband and me, it’s an indescribable feeling. We have spent countless sleepless nights worrying and caring for our sick child. We are now firm believers in chiropractic care and recommend Dr. Baker to anyone. In fact, our two (2) other children and I have started seeing Dr. Baker regularly. We are so thankful God put Dr. Baker in our lives.”

Why Baker Chiropractic Will Help with Chronic Aspiration

Chiropractic health care focuses on the health of the body’s central nervous system. When your central nervous system is healthy, all systems of the human body are optimized and working properly. Over time, this corrects and prevents various health conditions like chronic aspiration.

The best feature about chiropractic care is that it does not use prescription drugs or surgery to treat health care problems. Chiropractic care removes subluxations which impact nerves and inhibit the body’s normal functions and innate ability to heal.
